Everlast Returns was a top story for this week. Here it is again: (antiMusic) Whitey Ford is back and will release his new album on September 23rd. Here is the 411: "The sound is totally different than anything I've ever done before," says Everlast aka Erik Schrody, the Irish-American rapper and singer/songwriter about his new album, Love, War and the Ghost of Whitey Ford and that's saying something for the Grammy-winning artist who has broken ground and sold millions of albums for mixing hip-hop and acoustic-based folk-rock.

"I didn't approach it differently, I just kind of used a greater variety of instruments, and denser arrangements," he explains. "Of course, hip-hop remains an important influence on my music, but not everything I do fits under that category."

The new album, his first since 2004's Island/Def Jam release White Trash Beautiful, was co-produced by Everlast with his longtime partner Keefus Ciancia ("He's a real brainiac when it comes to vintage grooves"). Love, War and the Ghost of Whitey Ford is the logical sequel to his 1998 breakthrough, the multi-platinum Whitey Ford Sings the Blues, an eclectic mix of rock, blues, country, pop and hip-hop, which cracked the Billboard Top 20 and sold more than 3 million copies on the strength of its crossover hit, "What It's Like." - Check his Myspace for the latest
